She made the most of it clear up to the end. I ran into Amy and her daughter at the craft store the weekend before she passed. She was even at work on Halloween. Unfortunately, she suffered a fall that day, which caused a broken shoulder. It's possible that the injury may have caused a blood clot, because Amy died suddenly the next day. Maybe, with the advanced stage of her cancer, the injury was just too much.
All I know, is that Amy is in a better place now. A place where she feels no pain. Where she can watch over her daughter and her loved ones until it is their time to join her. I'm thankful for that.
This is a card I made for her daughter. She and her family will continue to be in my prayers. I pray that anyone who reads this will remember to be thankful for each and every day. Be thankful for the time you have with those you love, and don't take a single minute for granted.
